The show kicked off when a black curtain covering the stage lifted up to reveal Rascal Flatts members Gary LeVox, Joe Don Rooney and Jay DeMarcus performing “Summer Nights.” The crowd danced and sang along as the floor-to-ceiling LED screens lit up the venue with animated fireworks.

“Welcome to The Joint everyone,” said LeVox. “It’s great to be back.”

Throughout the performance, Rascal Flatts sang fan favorites and even surprised concertgoers by paying homage to some of their musical influences.

The band also switched things up from their first run at The Joint by going back to how they started – just the three of them and their drummer, Jim Riley. Casey Brown, a multi-instrumentalist, also joined them on stage to provide a unique sound for the Rascal Flatts Rhythm & Roots shows.
